That’s a 20 minutes video that explains the process in more details :)
A few days ago, I was lucky to be invited to speak in front of about 3000 leaders at the bi-annual APM gathering in Marseille on the topic “Renaissance & Entrepreneurship, New Ways». The organization was seamless, the stage and screens gigantic, the audience smart and enthusiastic. I loved it. I was there as a young tech / green entrepreneur using innovative methods to reach an international audience. I was honored to share the stage with amazing intellectuals such as Jacques Attali, Serge Soudoplatoff, Pierre-Marie Lledo, Axel Kahn, Florence Servan-Schreiber, Cynthia_Fleury, Jean-Francois Noubel and more.
My 3 key themes were :
- Innovation, the shape shifting hull and modular sailing drone
- Open Hardware for the Environment, inviting company leaders to change how they approach intellectual property
- Global collaboration, to solve world pressing problems
I presented more than 200 slides with many videos and several people asked me to post my presentations : they are below. You can flick through the slides and simply click the links on connected articles / sources / videos.

I really enjoyed sharing my experience during this event, the many smart & difficult questions, the great conversations. I want to send a special thanks to Marc Tirel (for introduction), Fleurke Combier (from APM), Marion Chapsal (coach http://ideasonstage.com/) Yves Rajaud and all the workshop animators – you have been amazing. Also great thanks to my agent who has organized all the logistics of the event, the magic Lavin Agency.
I will come again. The adventure continues!
It’s our great honour for Protei to participate the exhibition “Artists As Catalysts” was curated by Ars Electronica Linz GmbH in partnership with Alhondíga in Bilbao/Spain. Find all pieces and artists on export.aec.at/bilbao2013

“Everything we build in New York, fails”, heard it 3 times at the event. Rad.
If we want Protei, or any other intentionally meaningful technology to impact the life of the People, it’s got to scale, according to Erica Kochi and Christopher Fabian of UNICEF Innovation. Want to see more of them, or how these principles work? Here. Captured at Unreasonable At State, 2013 05 03 in Washington DC.

There are some moments that are too beautifully strange to be described with words.
Snapshot. It is 3 AM and I am playing basketball alone on top of one of the world fastest and most hygienic boat in the world, cruising speed between San Diego California and Ensenada in Baja California, Mexico.
Screenshot. My name is Cesar Harada, 29, I am an Unreasonable at Sea Entrepreneur. With my colleague Gabriella Levine, we got on board of the MV Explorer, for a 106 days sailing journey around the world with 10 other entrepreneurs that want to change the world, 20 world class mentors, 50 scholars, 600 american students to sail across 14 countries.
Thanks for joining the voyage! I will do my best to document the journey and share with you this privileged experience. This trip will be translated in several languages, thanks to a magnificent crew of volunteers translators : Thank you! We have just boarded, and we haven’t started to work yet. I will explain discussions, people, places, work as it develops over the next few days. The last days have been intense, and “now” feels more surreal than ever before. To understand bit more what’s happening, let’s rewind the last 72 hours :
A few hours earlier, I injured myself quite badly. As I brought a large wooden box for FedEx, I was asked – very last minute – to reduce the size of the wood crate I had just made. Working with a new and sharp wood saw just outside of FedEx in the dark and cold streets of Vancouver Canada, I simply butchered myself. In my bad luck, I am always the luckiest : the husband of my girlfriend’s best friend is a doctor, he decorated me with 8 pretty stitches above my left hand thumb tendons.
This is the box, containing 3 – in progress- prototypes of Protei, the Open Hardware Shape Shifting Sailing Robot. Too big to travel with me, the box is being transported to Hilo Hawaii where we will pick it up in a few days as we cross the Pacific Ocean.
We will use these prototypes to demo our technology. At sea for the next few months we will be developing both the technology and the business strategy for Protei technology.
It is now 5 AM, everyone is asleep, everything is vibrating as our 1000 passengers boat gently rolls. I am sitting in the cantine of the ship, our vessel is moving fast, cutting steadily through the steamy waters. This is the beginning of an amazing journey. Sore eyes, and brutal expectations.
I made these images to Promote Protei world tour with the Unreasonable at Sea :)
January to April 2013, Protei will sail all around the world and show up in these places. 2013 is going to be more than amazing for Protei and the Ocean.

World Environment Action (WEA)
The world leaders cannot agree, we need to take actions. We do 3 things :
1 – a global map conecting environmental reports to people taking action.
2 – a project managment interface
3 – a visual forum to imagine what the World Environment Organization (WEO) could be. Solving one problem at the time together. Take action!
Gabriella Levine and Cesar Harada have been selected to participate to the Unreasonable at sea for the Protei project.
Please watch the video above and you will understand why we are excited to be part of this great adventure. For several months on the sea, we will be in the company of some of the world most forward thinking entrepreneurs that will be our mentors. This is an immense honor for me and for the Protei Project and we will document this journey as well as possible to share this incredible privilege with the greatest number. You can see our dates of the travels and where we will stop on my time line.
